I’ve had a nice little break from my big butterfly collage but I’m ready to get back to it. I just finished a big oil painting commission so now I can move on, or back, rather. Currently this piece is about 1350 butterflies, printed by hand and cut out with scissors. Some of the butterflies are 11 colors, and all are at least 3, which is the yellow and black one, and actually I printed 2 layers of white and then two layers of yellow to get the color to pop, in addition to the 2 other colors.
I’m going to finish this one for Faultline‘s Grand Opening Saturday May 12. It feels pretty awesome to being so close to finishing it, I’ve been working on it for close to 8 years and I’d like to start the next one, which will be 20,000 butterflies. I’ll be giving myself 2 years to finish that one. It’s going to be quite large, 12 x 17 feet or so.
Share and Enjoy
